Gardeners, now that you’ve harvested your summer crops, it’s time to clean up your garden and do your winter planting.

To help you prepare for this work, the Yolo County UC Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners are offering their fall gardening workshops from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 20. This free event will take place at Woodland Community College, 2300 E. Gibson Road in Woodland.

Participants also will have the opportunity to purchase a variety of perennial ornamental landscape plants and winter vegetable garden plants grown by Master Gardeners and students from the college’s agriculture department.

Three free gardening workshops will be presented by Master Gardeners:

Bee-Friendly Gardening, 9 a.m.: Learn how to identify those beneficial bees buzzing around in your garden and how to attract both native bees and honey bees to your landscape.

Edible Landscaping, 10 a.m.: Artichokes in your rose bed, carrots with your pansies? Learn how to enjoy the added benefits of incorporating food plants as interesting design features in your home landscape.

Backyard and Worm Composting, 11 a.m.: Learn how to turn your garden and lawn waste into a valuable soil amendment and how red wiggler worms can munch up all your kitchen scraps. Free worms will be available, and Woodland residents can take home a free compost bin.

For more information on these free workshops and other Master Gardener activities, email [email protected] or call 530-666-8143.
